I don’t know the name of what I need???
Hi. This is my first time using this message center but I love threads magazine and wish I had more time to sew. I have two small children and my own business so there is very little time for hobbies right now.
However, I am currently making several cycling jerseys (for part of my business) and I am searching for a strechable armhole binding…I have a coverstitch machine which I will use to attatch this but I can’t seem to find what I am looking for. I have used regular bias tape but this doesn’t provide enough stretch because the jerseys are made out of a very lightweight knit fabric.
I also would like to find a binding tape to use to join the top edge of a handbag together (instead of attatching a lining and then turning it inside right). I have seen handbags with leather trim like this but I can’t seem to find it. I would also like to find this kind of trim for other items I make like placemats, etc… Any ideas where to find these kind of trims? I have tried many online stores with no like but maybe I am not calling them the right name???
I would love any ideas, insight, feedback from you…from the posts I have read this is a place with a wealth of information and knowledge.
Thank you for reading my post and for any help you can provide.
